When I travel, I like to travel in style! My family & close friends live in Montreal so I often travel between Toronto & Montreal, sometimes for a weekend getaway and sometimes for a week. Since I work from home now, if I decide to stay for the week, I need to pack all the essentials: laptop, charger, portable mouse & keyboard, clothes, shoes, and other personal effects. I end up taking 5 different bags to fit my entire life and it typically requires multiple trips to the car! After going through the motions a couple of times, I decided that I needed some better equipment to assist with my travels, so I partnered with Bugatti!
The Bugatti x Edition 22 Fall Collection is simply amazing! EDITION22 is an exclusive, gender-neutral collection, designed with their ambassador Etienne Boulay. Among all the great pieces, I picked this stunning tan set: duffle bag & backpack. Combining style & functionality, these items are made with luxe materials & they have multiple compartments that make travel life easier & more stylish! Plus, you can fit your entire life in them comfortably!
The duffle bag is ultra spacious and it has a long adjustable and removable E22 strap that allows you to carry the bag as a cross-body, on the shoulder or by hand. It has a large interior compartment with waterproof double zipper opening and a magnetic flap. It has a padded interior pocket for your laptop or tablet, in case you don’t have your backpack with you. It also has two side pockets where you can store a pair of shoes or other accessories. I used it to transport an extra pair of sneakers & my toiletries.
The backpack is absolutely perfect for work essentials, books, or personal items. You can store a tablet or laptop (up to 17-inches) in the padded section using the top zippered opening on the back of the bag. I actually managed to put two laptops in there: my work Dell and my personal MacBook Air (both 13 inches)! It has great front and lateral zippered pockets to store things like sunglasses, keys or a lipstick for quick access. You can also adjust the backpack to your silhouette with the E22 two-tone shoulder straps or hold the bag by the convenient top handle.
Both pieces are perfect for weekend getaways or for work. Wear them together or separately! I got to take my set out for a spin last week when I visited Montreal over the Halloween weekend to celebrate my b-day & I stayed the week, working during the weekdays. These bags were perfect for that purpose, allowing me to travel in style & comfort. I was able to fit all my work essentials & all my personal effects. The tan color fits my aesthetic & personal style but these pieces come in 3 other colors: khaki, black & plum. I will be travelling with these on repeat!
